    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Large and high calibre peer group. Provides access to a great amount of technical standards and guidelines. Technical support from various centres the world over is truly amazing.

    Cons

    Some of the senior staff are well-entrenched for years and seem to view new staff as threats. Group meetings of project staff are rarely held. Project work force tends to be too large and unwieldy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to bring in fresh thoughts and break up the old-fashioned heirarchical functioning.

    Current Employee - Project Information Manager in Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England
    Current Employee - Project Information Manager in Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Very process driven organisation - but thats not a bad thing in this case
     - Fairly flat management structure
     - A high focus on technical competence on employees and delivering that to clients

    Cons

    - Limit to how far/quickly you can grow if you are not an engineer
     - You may be stuck with a duff project and not be able to move on until the project is over, or you leave the company

    Pros

    They treat employees with respect and generally do not micro-manage you. If you are assigned to a project the pay scale is great.

    Cons

    If you are a local hire you don't get some wonderful perks like employees on job assignment do. Medical Benifits are very expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs to be more Pro Active instead of Re Active. Upper Management demands results and does not question how production results are obtained untill an incident occurs.

    Fluor: Co-champs for best EPC employer

    Former Employee - Employment Supervisor in Redwood Shores, CA (US)
    Former Employee - Employment Supervisor in Redwood Shores, CA (US)

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Fluor for 13 years; if you pay attention and work as a team player, it exceeds the other top EPC firms for which I worked in terms of learning curve on project execution, employee relations and employee/management loyalty. If you don't know how to work as a team player, our division quickly got rid of you through separation or transfer, and some of the personality with whom you work do not make "team work" easy.

    Cons

    Fluor pays near the top, but not at the top of major US EPC firms. Some of its technical experts are lifers who prefer to talk only with each other, sometimes at the expense of project operations. The Construction side out of Greenville and bean-counters in Sugar Land have sometimes had oversize influence on company performance and not in a good way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your rather talented HR staff; re-institute the Fluor Constructors HR folks onsite to ensure your employees are well cared for.

    Pros

    Very professional people. You're left alone to do your job and they have clear cut information to show you how they want it done.

    Cons

    Like most contract work, you're busy until you're not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job.
